I also know that this may not be the right site but all I can find are rumors of hacking or viruses. I have been having multiple issues with iPhone and iPad. I know everyone says that malware is non existent on ios but I'm beginning to think something is here. I have been getting redirects during web searches including screen flashing and results changing in front of my eyes, face time seems to be running occasionally even after I restrict it. Which multiplayer blocked I am still connecting to AV server. They are occasionally showing carrier settings menu option but it goes away after a few minutes. My bank statements show multiple 1-5 dollars purchases that list itunes and lins to a 866 number that is not an apple number. It's listed as spam and fraud number at 800notes. iTunes occasionally opens to blank page with mzstoreinstall as the only thing on page. I've used netstat and system status apps as well as iPhone config utility. Netstat shows multiple connections always sometimes as many as 20 to random ip addees. Sys logs show absinthe daemon running which could be legit. I randomly lose all my settings including pass code and restrictions. My devices keep showing an imap address with a DNS that looks like Verizon but resolves to nothing. Imap:my firstname.lastname@example.org@sv4iv.myvzw.com. When I reset to factory, sometimes I get language select, sometimes not. Sometimes the apple icon goes from white then flashes blue, sometimes not. iTunes occassionally loads square white boxes instead of icons with a small blue question mark in the box. My Verizon call and data histories show mms and pix flick msgs to my friends and family that I never sent and do not show up in my phone logs. Config utility shows SMS messages being sent. Witnessed by both apple and Verizon employees. (they say no malware exists and clOning not possible. My font changes on my menu options. I have hotspot blocked by Verizon yet the menu collapses every time I go to network settings and Misd is constantly running on the phone. Battery needs charged 2-3 times a day. Thousand other things including ota firmware updates several times a day. And it keeps logging "highland park resource manager " firmware download. Constantly logs private vPn connections and USB cable connect at times that it's in airplane mode. Bluetooth keeps turning on by itself even in airplane mode. Is this legit? Debug): AppleBCMWLANCore::handleEventPacket(): WLC_E_FIFO_CREDIT_MAP,length 6 [10 2 8 4 3] and this is just tip of iceberg. If anyone wants to know more I can email logs. I just haven't been able to find anything on google and im not sure if this is something that im just being paranoid about. Im on the 4 th phone, all replaced by Verizon and apple after their techs say "that's odd, u def need a new phone" and after it crahes my home computer and need to reinstall itunes every time. I can't find answers. Is it malware, iPhone spy monitor service, law enforcement, paranoia, hacker? Carrier iq? I also have tried loading a self made config profile since my log was showing parsing profile errors shortly after resets. And shows cell and wifi harvesting which uploads to a vpn(apple?) what's normal here and what not. Any help would be great.
